Hodgkin lymphoma support tool
Many Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) patients find changes in their quality of life the most difficult challenge faced during treatment and recovery. Trying to manage the process can take an enormous toll on patients’ and their care-givers physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
To support patients and care-givers, Lymphoma Coalition has developed the Lyfe app - the first and only mobile app dedicated to those with Hodgkin lymphoma. It also serves as a go-to resource for family and friends who might not always understand the challenges faced by HL patients. Reflecting its content and purpose, the name Lyfe is a combination of “lymphoma and life.” The app is free and available on the App Store and Google Play.
Patients and support-givers can share their stories, ask questions and connect with others who are dealing with similar circumstances - locally, nationally and around the world.
Find insightful articles providing practical tips designed to help during all stages of the patient experience. This section also includes information geared specifically to friends and family members who are providing help and support during this challenging time.
Some of the more popular topics are:
- Creating a support system and staying connected
- Dealing with emotions, anxiety, and stress
- Handling work-related issues
- Tips for daily living
The Lyfe app contains links to additional information and resources, including Lymphoma Coalition’s member patient organisations so visitors may find a local resource dedicated to them. Lymphoma Coalition hopes the Lyfe app will support HL patients and their care-providers through their experience.
